Alot of other games, but those above are those i will play the most
I've read a review on the 4890's in CrossfireX, Link here.
The review show's some benchmark. Among others: Call Of Duty 4, Crysis and FarCry 2, which is some of the games I'll be playing. The benchmarks shows the games played at 1920x1200 which a tad larger then my monitors resolution, which is 1920x1080
I don't care to much for DirectX 11 and rarely buy new games so I wont go for a DX11 card of the same caliber as the 4890.
The benchmarks was done on a similar setup: Core i7 920 @ 3,8Ghz Gigabyte X58 Motherboard
Only 2 GB of DDR3 memory
The benchmarks showed that the 4890's in CrossfireX beats the GTX295 in Crysis at 1920x1200 with 4x Anti-Aliasing. That's why I'm getting the 2 cards, since they're cheaper and beats the GTX295 in several games.
What do you think about it?
